Book Blogger Love-A-Thon: Mini Challenge #2

I am a brand spankin' new book blogger so when I saw Katelyn's LoveAThon I knew I wanted in.  What a great way to meet new bloggers and to get my blog out there.  For Mini Challenge #2, she has asked us to write about some of the new blogs we've found through this.  Here are a few of mine:

Of course Katelyn is my first new find.  When I saw her tweet about the LoveAThon, I immediately went to her blog to see what this was about.  Not only did I read about it, but I read more and more on her blog.  She is a fun girl with a fantastic blog!  So happy I found her.

Another fun find I have discovered is Jana at  I had heard of her before through a friend so when I saw her on the LoveAThon list, I was thrilled.  Her blog is upbeat and fun.  I'm excited to get to know her better and read her posts.

I also just found the girls at aka The Secret Life of an Avid Reader.  Just the title alone drew me in.  I consider myself an avid reader so what's not to like about this blog?  I found it to be a welcoming, informative, and fun blog to read.  

Alexa at is a fun new find for me.  I loved the look of her blog when I first saw it and after reading some posts, I loved her too.  She is very real and I find that very refreshing.

And last but not least is Rachel at  I was excited when I read that she's also an author.  I LOVE connecting with authors and hearing about how they started etc.  Her blog is super cute and fun to read.  

I definitely have more I'm finding and will do some more shout outs in the future.  I appreciate all of the support I'm receiving and cannot wait to share more reviews, guest posts, and giveaways with you.

Happy Friday!

  10. Hi Laura

    As a fellow newish blogger, I've decided to follow your blog.

    Yours is a lot better looking than my own (I'm not so much a technophobe, more a techoincompetent) and I'm looking forward to reading more.

    Best wishes.
